In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, Camelot Elementary School will be celebrating Hispanic culture, traditions and accomplishments.

We have Dom Chiecchi, editor in charge of Hispanic Publications for the San Antonio Express News coming to speak to our older students. They will also be treated to a presentation by Patsy Torres, well known Tejano artist and role model. Our younger students will have a presentation by Lupe Flores, author of Aguas Frescas for Alicia. The presentation will be followed by an actual tasting of "aguas frescas."

Other fun activities include a display case full of student and teacher realia depicting their pride in Hispanic Heritage, story times with Hispanic themes, characters and/or authors. Also, during morning announcements student report's are featured about accomplished Hispanic Americans.


Oak Grove celebrates culture

Oak Grove Elementary School celebrates culture by participating in National Hispanic Heritage Month. Students have an opportunity to learn about Hispanic leaders, and the impact that they have made in our communities. We focus on diversity, and expanding our young minds as they pursue their own future goals.

As one of our Oak Grove parents stated, "My child will not only gain a deeper understanding, and respect for diversity; she will learn to interact and appreciate differences."
